The baby

Last week, Alex and I went to the hospital for our second sonogram. The doctors smeared warm gel on my belly and looked at the baby on the monitor. He was wriggling all over the place! (I've been feeling him kick SO much lately, which is adorable and kind of feels like bubbles.) It was totally sci-fi to see his tiny spine with all the intricate bones, but the most exciting part was seeing his teeny profile. Alex jokes that he looks like a Dr. Seuss character at this point, but we think he's beautiful and are totally enamored. This little photo makes me smile every time I look at it. I love his tiny hand just hanging out there. :)

Thanks for all your lovely comments about everything so far; it's so much fun to share everything with you. xoxo

Happenstance said...

Oh Joanna isn't that the best? That little spine is amazing, it's all amazing:)

abigail said...

so magical and beautiful.

Deanna said...

Hi little duffer! Seeing the baby is so exciting! At our last ultrasound, our little guy kept looking towards us and blowing kisses (we had a scare around 5 months and thought we might lose him, and I think it was his way of telling us that everything is going to be okay). It's so crazy when they get bigger and kick, because you can, like, grab onto little hands and feet almost popping through your belly. I was always amazed that my belly-button didn't unravel and my kids pop out that way. What an excited time, thank you for sharing with us!

JIN, The Fabulous Wife said...

Poppy said...

Awww wow! Congratulations again. =]
Any baby name ideas yet?

benson said...

how exciting! our daughter and her husband will be having a girl (we think)...the tech said that "baby wouldn't open her legs to be 100% sure" in which we replied "good girl--so modest!" and he said that he would lean towards a girl--but another ultrasound in 2/10 should confirm. Congrats to all of you!

Kathryn said...

That is the clearest ultra sound picture I have ever seen! Congratulations!

Meg Fee said...

ahhhh, he's perfection. already. congratulations!!

Joanna Goddard said...

benson, that's such a funny story!

The first thing I noticed was that perfect little spine. Also, I'm going to go off that little Who profile, and say you should name him Finn. It sounds like a character from Dr. Seuss.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Yay, love that you posted this. Joanna the Mommy :)

Mara from Motherofalltrips said...

I know you'll save this for the baby book and all abut I wanted to share that we also got a gorgeous profile ultrasound of my oldest son and that although he is now 7, his nose still looks exactly the same. Sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of him in profile now and it will bring me right back to lying on that table and seeing him for the very first time.

So you may not actually need to keep the photo to keep the memory. Congrats!

A Day That is Dessert said...

Yay!! Thanks for sharing this. My husband is a radiologist and we went in almost weekly to take a look at our peanut :) (the first time. the second pregnancy, we didn't have time).

Eek, he's adorable. He's totally waving, saying "what's up" to the blog world. (He may be the most popular unborn child around)!

Maki said...

Awwwwwweee this is great - I can't stop smiling.. Have you heard of 3D sonogram? It's pretty cool - I got it done when I was pregnant with my second daughter...

Please take care of yourself and the little peanut :)

my son was so busy we nicknamed him "ninja". funniest part was that his feet were always VERY mobile (before and after) - and still are!
enjoy every moment. i missed those little kicks when he was born, but he made up for it by being the coolest little person i know.
